SIU discontinues investigation into women’s arrest in Elliot Lake 

By Rosalind Russell-

The Special Investigations Unit has closed an investigation into an incident involving East Algoma OPP in Elliot Lake.

SIU director, Joseph Marino, says a 30-year-old woman from Elliot Lake, was arrested, not once, but twice by OPP, on July 2nd and 3rd.

He says the two incidents involved the woman having two alcohol run-ins with officers and that a level of force was used to take her into custody.

Following her release on the third, he adds she went to hospital and was diagnosed with a possible fracture of her right wrist, but a further examination showed she had suffered no broken bones.

Marino says based on those preliminary findings, the investigation is now closed.
